Mrs. Deliah Boyd died January 24, 1891,at her residence, near Cotton Gin,Texas, in the eighty-third year of her age.Grandma Boyd, as she was called by almost every one,no doubt was prepared for departure.She has been more than fifty years preparing for this journey.She was a grand and good old woman,very sweet spirited,and one that you would have no doubt of meeting in the "sweet-bye-bye." She leaves a husband eighty-eighty years of age,to whom she was united in marriage sixty five years ago.I visited them a few days before her death, and as sat side by side I thought how good and how pleasant is old age to such as these. She leaves seventy-five children and grandchildren,while many had preceded her to the other shore.One little great-grandchild has crossed over since she left, the infant of Bro.Cicero Boyd,having died on Saturday the 7th.instant.To all these bereaved ones we would say:God doeth all things well,and while we see through a glass darkly now,yet someday,if we are only faithful,we will understand all. God bless you.
